Demolition Photos

The demolition of the remaining homes at the village was completed just before 9/1/11. Although this is very sad for most of us to see, I think it’s important to document this part of the Village history, too. I’d like to thank my friends Kevin Conner Hardesty and Janet Tarpley for providing the first of these photos.

Hopefully, there will be additions to this gallery as more pictures come in. I’ve enabled comments, so click on a thumbnail to post your thoughts.

About Dana

I spent 7 years at Table Rock with my wife, daughter and son. After transferring in from the Amarillo, Texas survey crew, I worked as a Plant Operator at Table Rock Processing Plant and later as a General Technician. Like most Table Rockers, life in Table Rock Village and working (and playing) in the Wyoming Red Desert had a great impact on the person I became. I now make my living as a freelance writer and I am working on a book about Table Rock and how it shaped the lives of the residents. I hope to share the stories of fellow Table Rockers as well as my own.

    I viewed the Village on Google Earth before the Demolition
    And it brought back many memories. As a 60 + year old man
    There isn’t much left that takes me back to younger days…it is sad . An example is at the New Jersey beaches… The weathering has been addressed by adding tons and tons of quarry sand and gravel to replace that lost by winter storms…. But it isn’t the same.. Cape May NJ has a beech taken over by the Federal Government and Lanled a National Treasure where you can visit it but not swim if you sign up in advance for a limited tour. I actually just went there a walked in and sat on the unmolested beech and that brought me back got youth. The beech was exactly how I remove red it complete with wildlife such as hermit crabs… But those things are rare.
